Managing User Accounts and User Groups

While WhatsUp Gold allows you to create and customize user groups as well as enable individual user rights for those groups in order to meet your specific network monitoring needs, you can also take advantage of several preconfigured user groups which have common and/or logical combinations of user rights enabled to reflect typical user group profiles. Use the Add New User dialog to manage user accounts and user group access to application features such as Account Administration, System Administration, Monitoring, Devices, APM (Application Performance Monitoring), and Reports.
